Melbourne Airport (IATA: MEL, ICAO: YMML), also known as Tullamarine Airport, is the busiest of the four airports in Melbourne, and the second busiest in Australia. A major domestic hub, it is curfew-free and handles more freight than any other airport in Australia, and is the most common destination for the airports of five of Australia's seven capital cities. It is part of the Melbourne-Sydney air route, which is the fourth busiest passenger air route in the world, and the second busiest in the Asia-Pacific region.
Melbourne Airport has been the recipient of the International Air Transport Association Eagle Award, two National Tourism Awards, and has been ranked in the top five airports worldwide numerous times. Skytrax classifies it as a four-star airport. It is the home base for passenger airlines Jetstar Airways and Tiger Airways Australia, and cargo airlines Australian air Express and Toll Priority. Qantas and Virgin Blue utilise the airport as a major hub, and the airport was the home base for now-defunct Ansett Australia and Trans Australia Airlines.
The airport is located 23 kilometres (14 mi) northwest of the Melbourne city centre, adjacent to the suburb of Tullamarine. It is considered its own suburb - Melbourne Airport (postcode 3045). With two runways and four terminals, over thirty airlines operate flights to a total of more than sixty destinations. In excess of 24 million passengers used the airport during the 2007/08 fiscal year, and nearly 200,000 aircraft movements were recorded in that time. Since 2004, Melbourne Airport has faced competition from Avalon Airport, located 55 kilometres (34 mi) to the southwest of the city centre, for domestic operations. A second commercial airport is unique for an Australian city.
